"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Week 4 (25/1/21)


A number can be made of more than one digit so we use place value headings, like onestens (0)hundreds (00) and thousands (000), to help us understand the value of each digit!


Click on the links below and watch the videos to learn more about place value. It will help you understand what each digit means by where it is placed in a number! 

There are also some quizzes on these links and the slides below also have some examples where you can practice partitioning the numbers. Partitioning the numbers means splitting a number into smaller parts so it's easier to work with/understand


E.g. 63 (sixty three) can be partitioned into tens and ones and means 60 and 3.

The 6 represents 60 (six-ty) - 'ty' meaning ten which we write in maths with one zero (remember though, that the ty/zero hides behind any ones - that's why we can't see it in the number 63)


Once you've done this, have a go at one of the sheets uploaded (or as many questions as you can do within 30 minutes). You can print and work onto the sheet or copy out the questions and write the answers in your exercise books/onto paper.


Go through the slides below to remind yourself of the names and properties of some 2D shapes. 

Then draw a picture using 2D shapes and label each of the different shapes you've used!

I've uploaded some examples of shape pictures below.




Today we're going to be adding!smileyHowever, we don't always see maths stories when adding - sometimes it's in the form of a word problem!

Watch the video linked on the blog of me explaining today's lesson and modelling how to solve addition word problems.

Then choose one of the sheets below to complete. You can either print these out and write onto the sheets or if working directly into exercise books/onto paper, write out which challenge you've chosen (MILD, SPICY, SUPER HOT) and write out the question numbers so I can give you the right feedback : )


I've also uploaded the simple steps I modelled, that you can follow that will help you solve each question. 



Once you've watched the example video of how we can add two 2 digit numbers together, have a go at the rest of the questions. I've uploaded a list of the maths stories and I've also added photos of each of the maths stories using the number cards. There are two photo slides per question so the children can see the numbers as they are written normally, but also partitioned so they can see the tens and the ones separately. 

E.g. 32 and 21 is also shown as 30 and 2 & 20 and 1


Write your maths stories out onto squared paper if you have it : )
